Our products

Product category: Polystyrene foams


With its superior electrical conductivity and adhesiveness, even a slight current in the body is stably detected.

ST-gel is a hydrogel which was created by Sekisui's unique polymerization technology. It is a high-function, highly-safe raw material. Water, and if necessary, moisturizing agent and electrolyte, are stably maintained in a hydrophilic resin matrix.

We conduct safety test that complies with ISO10993 standard (primary skin irritation test, skin sensitization test, acute oral toxicity test, and cell toxicity test). For connection with the lead cord, we have a selection of electrode with hook terminal (snap) structure and electrode with 2mm-jack structure. We have a variety of processed gel products which are used by attaching them to exclusive rubber guides of various medical devices. It is suitable for propagation of ultrasound on the skin.

Techpolymer (for cosmetics use)

Techpolymer enhances cosmetic product functions with its excellent lubrication, better touch, and light diffusion effects.

Techpolymer, characterized by spherical particles, is used as a lubrication enhancer for foundation. Techpolymer can be added to make it easier to apply cosmetics smoothly, cover up wrinkles, and change their texture. Porous particles are usable as absorber, and elastic particles providing a soft feel are also available.

Specific applications

By adding Techpolymer to various cosmetics products, application of cosmetics becomes smoother, and change their texture. For example, by blending MBX-C series, smoother application and texture can be obtained. ACX series can be added to give a creamy texture. Also, the shape of spherical particles can be maintained intact even at the time of adding additives and pressing due to its elasticity. This in turn enables the product to have both softness and smooth application. Since MBP-8 and ACP-8C are porous, they offer both pleasant touch and oil absorption. In addition, ACP-8C has elasticity, and for that reason can support various oil agents and at the same time give a soft touch. Also, oil absorption of Techpolymer varies from one grade to another toward various oil agents, and for that reason can be utilized in a wide range of blending designs. Is spherical particles of cross-linked polymethyl methacrylate, from which residual monomers have been removed by high purification.
Nonspherical particles (LMX series) have a higher light diffusing effect, compared with spherical particles. When applied to cosmetic products, it will make the uneven skin smooth and cover up wrinkles by diffusing light in various directions (soft-focus effect).

Techpolymer is a light diffusion agent which provides superior light transmittance and diffusion performance.

Sekisui's Techpolymer is an indispensable part of the LCD for personal computers and televisions. The uniform light diffusion effect from the spherical particles helps make the entire display brighter and easier to see. It is also used as LED light cover's light diffusion material. It can be used in the fields that require high optical performance by reducing all light transmittance with haze-boosting effects. Upon customer request, we are developing varieties with improved optical performance and solvent resistance.

Specific applications

Techpolymer is used as a light diffusing material to scatter transmitted light and reduce reflected light, being added to transparent resins such as acrylic resin and polycarbonate resin, and also being coated on the surface of transparent films such as PET film. Compared to generally-used, non-organic titanium oxide, barium sulfate, and others, Techpolymer boasts higher light transmission and lower loss of all light transmittance, as well as the haze-boosting effects.
